How we do it

Power Paws utilizes science-based positive reinforcement clicker training with all of our dogs. We strive to use force-free methods to raise dogs that work happily and voluntarily for their partners.

Power Paws is fully accredited by Assistance Dogs International.

Power Paws raises, trains and places assistance dogs with children and adults with disabilities.  We train dogs to work with people with mobility impairments, Type 1 diabetes and people with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Our dogs that work with people with mobility impairments can retrieve dropped items, open and close doors, and help remove articles of clothing.

Children and adults with Type 1 diabetes often have problems managing blood glucose levels.  Our Diabetic Alert Dogs are taught to alert and signal when they sense these changes.
